A - Cloudy dark, dark brown with a slightly off-white head that disippates quickly and leaves a very short lace.
S - Much like their Hefe but more subdued and with some malty notes.
T - More subdued banana and clove that is very adeptly balanced by malted grain. Hops are just there.
M - Full yet a little crisp somehow.
O - A really well balanced weissebier. I prefer my dunkels to be a bit lighter brown. All in all, this was just a good, well-rounded beer.. I was hoping it would be a great hot summer lawn mowing beer. I'll probably drink it as an early autumn refresher, though.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Murky mahogany-brown pour with a quickly fading one finger off-white head with decent lacing. Nutty, earthy nose with hints of banana, brown bread, clove, and a subtle vinous character. The taste follows suit with lots of malty brown bread up front along with hints of banana, clove, toffee, apple, tobacco, molasses, and a subtle vinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy with medium carbonation and good balance. Overall, a solid interpretation with good drinkability.
